In any case, climate change is not the only potential risk from maintaining the status quo in energy consumption. Fossil fuels are running out. Not next year or in 10 years but certainly within the lifespan of some people alive today. Surely it's better to begin the conversion now than wait until circumstances leave you dashing around at the last minute. Pollution is real and has much shorter-term effects than climate change. There are many long-term public health benefits in creating cleaner energy sources.
I am actually not suggesting legislation to ban anything, however. I'm suggesting the governments across the world incentivise r/d into alternative energy and make alternative forms of transport more attractive than those more wasteful kinds. Better public transport, better facilities for people using non-fossil-based energy sources.
From my point of view, the right to use up finite energy sources at an unsustainable rate isn't a fundamental inalienable right for anyone.

I then asked you:We have learned more since then.
You have since only dodged those questions.Have we? Are you sure?
What's changed since then, and how do you know?
Be sure to factor in the recent revelations regarding the cooking of the termperature data books.
And then, what's to say that 30 years from now, we will not have learned more, and found that the "global warming' scare was unfounded?
This was supported by a (supposed) average rise in temps across the US in the 3-4 days after 9-11 when all the planes were grounded.
The jist of the story was that global warmiong is actually worse than we think -- but, I believe the people pushing the story have unwittingly stumbled upon a solution -- more, dirtier, commercial aircraft!
It's fairly common knowledge that the smell after a static electric shock is caused by Ozone. So my theory is that if we create a HUGE latex balloon and the world's largest toupee and rub them together under the hole in the Ozone layer, everything'll get better.
